Fair enough.  I only find it slightly annoying.

Thinking about it, my chief concerns are that 1) the number of
hand-written pages will keep grow; and 2) they (might) look
inconsistent with the wiki.  As you're confident about (1) not being
an issue, I won't worry about it.

Ah, I forgot the review policy for the wiki is quite liberal.

Dunno.  I also assumed you can "lock" files in the wiki, such that
they can only be modified by people with ssh push access.
